What a fun cake this was to make! The famous "Shoe" was made out of two layers of cake from the Wilton horseshoe cake pan, in Red Velvet no doubt, and layered with cherry preserves. Wilton red/clear sugar crystals represent the fans in the stands, and the windows that align the outside of the Shoe are made from black licorice. The pennants were made by printing copies of the Big Ten's teams pennants, and then taped them onto toothpicks. See my other picture to see inside the Shoe for Script Ohio.
